Contrary to their expectations, they survived and now live far away from home, in Finland. Life goes on. At least on the outside… Torture has had a severe impact on them all: they suffer from psychological traumas and it has affected their minds, self-esteem and sleep. And the rise of an anti-immigration atmosphere in their new home country puts even more pressure on the four fragile souls.

In the film, the stories of the four men are interwoven into a common experience of what it is like to try, not only to survive, but to live on after torture. It is a tough battle, told in their own hesitant but all too sufficient words. After Life is a psychologically perceptive and artistically consistent film that asks the very essential question: is there life on the other side?
